Democrats Are Hoping This Is Watergate – But In Reality Comey’s Testimony Turned Out To Be A Huge ‘Nothing Burger’

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Many were anticipating that #ComeyDay would be the most monumental congressional hearing in decades, but the truth is that it turned out to be quite a dud.  During two and a half hours of testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee, former FBI Director James Comey didn’t tell us anything that we don’t already know.  Of course liberal news outlets such as CNN are breathlessly proclaiming that we are now “in Nixon territory”, but that isn’t accurate at all.  There is absolutely no evidence that President Trump committed any crime, and there is absolutely nothing that warrants impeachment.

And I am far from alone in that assessment.  For example, an analysis published by CNBC says that nothing in Comey’s testimony was “powerful enough to end the Trump presidency literally or figuratively”…

“Former FBI Director James Comey’s Senate testimony Thursday will indeed have a big political impact in Washington. It will foster more partisan bitterness and more bad feelings about our political process and news media. But none of his testimony rises to the level of anything legally powerful enough to end the Trump presidency literally or figuratively.

The bottom line is that Comey spent a few hours Thursday telling the Senate committee that he felt uncomfortable and even stunned by President Trump’s behavior. And he peppered that narrative with numerous damaging statements about the president’s behavior and character, including basically calling him a liar”

When Comey accused Trump of being a liar, that certainly made a lot of headlines, but unless you are under oath it is not a crime to lie.

Perhaps we should make it a crime for our politicians to lie, because if we did we would clean out the toilet that Washington D.C. has become rather quickly.  But as it stands, even if Trump is a low-down dirty liar as Comey is claiming, that would simply put Trump on the same level as most of the current members of Congress.

The much more important question is whether or not Trump committed obstruction of justice.  Fortunately for Trump, there is a very clear answer to that question.

First of all, we must remember that Trump was Comey’s boss.  As chief executive, Trump has constitutional power to direct the activities of his subordinates, and he is free to fire them whenever he chooses.  So, as Alan Dershowitz just pointed out on CNN, Trump cannot be impeached for simply exercising his constitutional authority…

Renowned Harvard professor and legal mind Alan Dershowitz sparked quite a reaction during a CNN segment on Wednesday night after he proclaimed that former FBI director James Comey’s prepared testimony indicates that President Donald Trump didn’t commit any crimes.

Dershowitz argued that Trump “could have told Comey, ‘You are commanded, directed to drop the investigation against [Gen. Michael] Flynn,’” but noted that he didn’t do so, according to Comey’s prepared testimony that was published on Wednesday.

The famed attorney also said Trump could have pardoned Flynn as well, but also chose not to do so. In the end, he concluded that there appears to be no criminal activity on the part of the president, particularly when it comes to obstruction of justice claims.

Traditionally, the FBI has operated in a highly independent manner, but there is nothing in the law that gives the FBI independent status.

If Congress wants to pass a law to remove the FBI from being under the president’s authority they can certainly do that, but as it stands what Trump did was fully within the law.

But even if Trump didn’t have the authority, there would still be no obstruction of justice.  The two most important federal statutes that cover obstruction of justice are 18 U.S.C. § 1503 and 18 U.S.C. § 1505.  In both cases, it would be exceedingly difficult for prosecutors to prove that Trump acted “corruptly” in this case.  Not only that, there was no “proceeding” that Trump was trying to influence.  For a more extended analysis, please see the article that I posted yesterday entitled “Even If Everything James Comey Is Claiming Is True, There Is Still No Evidence That Trump Is Guilty Of Any Crime”.

If Comey is being straight with us, and at this point his credibility is pretty much shot, but if he is being straight with us there is still nothing that is going to end Trump’s presidency.

What Trump did may have been “inappropriate”, but you don’t impeach a president for being “inappropriate”.

In the aftermath of Comey’s testimony, Trump’s attorney said that the president feels “completely and totally vindicated”

President Donald Trump’s private attorney, Marc Kasowitz, on Wednesday said his client felt “completely and totally vindicated” by James Comey’s prepared opening statement to the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Comey’s remarks, released Wednesday in advance of Thursday’s Senate hearing, confirmed previous statements by Trump that Comey had told him three times that he was not personally being investigated amid the FBI’s wide-ranging inquiry into Russian meddling in the election and the Trump campaign’s possible ties to Russia.

Personally, I hope that this whole “scandal” will go away now.  There never was anything to it in the first place, and the American people want a government that is going to focus on solving problems instead of focusing on investigations that were doomed to go absolutely nowhere from the start.

But even if this Comey angle doesn’t work out, the Democrats will just keep on trying.  In fact, the Huffington Post is already starting to promote the theory that Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement is an impeachable offense.

In the end, the Democrats are never going to give up until they find something that they can use against Trump.  What I am hearing is that they are going to make an all-out push to take back the House and the Senate in 2018, and if they can do that they plan to use their congressional majorities to get rid of Trump one way or another.

This is just another reason why the 2018 mid-term elections are going to be the most important mid-term elections in modern American history, because if the Democrats have their way Trump will never even make it to 2020.

    Trump lawyer opens up on Comey with both barrels as he accuses him of leaking ‘privileged’ information to reporters and confirms the president was never under investigation

    President Donald Trump’s lawyer Marc Kasowitz took a victory lap Thursday following the blockbuster testimony of fired FBI Director James Comey, blasting him in a lengthy statement. He hammered Comey for releasing information about his conversations with the president to reporters in an attempt to force the appointment of a special-counsel inquest into Russian election interference.

    ‘Today, Mr. Corney admitted that he unilaterally and surreptitiously made unauthorized disclosures to the press of privileged communications with the President,’ Kasowitz said in a statement. And ‘contrary to numerous false press accounts leading up to today’s hearing,’ he added, ‘Mr. Comey has now finally confirmed publicly what he repeatedly told the President privately: The President was not under investigation as part of any probe into Russian interference.’

    Double trouble: Donald Trump Jr and brother Eric team up to attack James Comey on Twitter – while their father resists the urge to tweet from White House dining room

    The oldest son of President Trump stayed quiet for on social media for most of the first hour of the Comey hearing, but then unleashed a sudden tweet storm shortly before 11am. He even retweeted an individual whose Twitter handle is ‘CNN is ISIS & Hitler’ at one point, posting over 50 times in less then two hours. It was Don Jr. flying solo for close to two hours, until his brother Eric jumped into the fray shortly after noon with a single retweet meant to damn the fired FBI director. Their father meanwhile watched the hearing from the White House dining room, where he resisted the urge to get online and comment on the events of the day.

      And what does this have to do with James Comey’s congressional hearing?

      • Cinderella Man

        Nothing but the dumb fcuk thinks he’s a journalist. He’s just a tool. He acts like he’s the only one enlightened enough to read news articles.

        • JC Teecher

          Right on the money, CM.
          That dude is a psychopath. He responded that all those people that up voted to have him banned, were just those that show up and add “nothing” to the blog.

          He sees himself in some sort of magical world on this site as the high “sheriff” and wants to lock away all Christians or even those that support anything biblical, spoken of here.
          He is such an infantile narcissist, that he believes the site can’t function without him and his endless links.

          I really believe he is like 12 years old.

          • socalbeachdude

            What utter ignorance and extreme stupidity on your part once again.

          LOL. What does any of this have to do with James Comey’s congressional hearing?

          • socalbeachdude

            As I clearly stated, it was BREAKING NEWS, and is now the TOP STORY all around the world which is equivalent to a MAGNITUDE 9 EARTHQUAKE in the UK. Are you somehow not aware of that, or what?

          • IronBelly

            So what would happen if we waited to read about this news tomorrow? Is there something we have to do right away to avoid disaster?

          • SoCalBeachDude

            I take it you take special pleasure in reading day old, week old, and year old news! Different strokes from different folks! And it is apparent you don’t place any value whatsoever on knowledge. Very, very sad.

        • IronBelly

          Even if it was “BREAKING NEWS”, that does not make it relevant to the main article on the Comey testimony.

          • socalbeachdude

            Do you now know the meaning of BREAKING NEWS or even begin to comprehend the importance of this breaking news which has thrown the UK into TOTAL TURMOIL? Hellllooooo?

          • IronBelly

            What do you think the meaning of “BREAKING NEWS” is?

          • socalbeachdude

            Obviously, BREAKING NEWS is news of substantial public impact that has just occurred and is now development and is breaking into public awareness.

          • IronBelly

            Very good. So then, do you know the meaning of “relevant”?

          • socalbeachdude

            The MAY DAY news is highly relevant and is now the TOP STORY in all media across the world right now 4 hours later.

          • IronBelly

            Don’t you think the people reading this blog are capable enough to read news webpages on their own and select for themselves the stories they are interested in?

          • socalbeachdude

            It was posted as BREAKING NEWS right at the time it became clear that the vote in the UK had gone EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT WAS WIDELY EXPECTED and that there would be huge repercussions from that vote, which are increasing substantially this morning in the UK. I’d suggest you get up to speed on that enormously important matter!

          • IronBelly

      Lief Erickson added his name to your list today, and three new ones up voted on my list in the previous article, where I welcomed upvotes to continue the list.

      sbeachdud replied to me that all those that upvoted for his banning, were those that never added anything to the blog, and are just losers, that cannot accept his truths. lol.

      The articles he posts links to are subjective and some truths do appear, but; he seriously thinks he has made a change in the world by copying and posting them.lol lol lol lol, that is some whackey weasel stuff there brother. I think in his twisted mind, he believes that readers will somehow think he is the one that wrote all those articles, and he gets a big woody off it.

      This guy has proven he is a psychopath, and I would hate to know him personally or even live in the same neighborhood, as he may just be ready to snap and hurt some innocent people at anytime.

      The only sane explanation for his radical behavior, is that he is an experiment by the LWO/Illuminati/Shadow gov, and that explains why he can never leave this site, on his own. Maybe the Cia has another stockpile of lsd that they are trying new mind control experiments with, and he is one they are paying, and is expendable to them, if he od’s, or they just have him Fosterized.

      • socalbeachdude

        Hardly, but YOU certainly have proven you are a very hateful psychopath who puts up endless baseless ad hominem attacks that show zero logic and common sense, not to mention very bad manners.

          • SoCalBeachDude

            Thank you, Carl, and your comments are also always excellent here!

          • jgibbsphd

            Not completely. You cut and paste article after article and link after link as if those are completely undebatable gospels of truth, but when many are only opinion, often very biased at that.

            You claims of the 120 dollar index by June did not happen, and your claims of gold dropping to the $400’s range are insane and defy basic economics and reality of the REAL metals markets.

            Anytime someone attempts to correct or educate you, you spew lies, false accusations, denials, etc etc. As if you believe by simply stating such becomes truth. I know, I have tried to reason with you from a PhD point of view and with peers in very high economic and other leadership capacities. When my inlaw, who works with Credit Suisse and has over 150 international bankers under his supervisions, tells me much of your claims are pure BS, you cannot accept reality from those truly in the know.

            But, the best evidence against you is your on claims that have proven to be complete failures and nonsense. Like 120 dollar index by June when it is 96. Etc, etc, etc!!

            I vote to ban you !

          • SoCalBeachDude

            Laughably false. You obviously have major issues with READING AND COMPREHENSION as I NEVER made any claim that the US Dollar Index (DXY) would be at 120 by June as you totally falsely assert above and I have clearly told you that at least once before when you made such a totally false assertion. What I did state is that the DXY was HEAD TO 120 AND COULD GO POSSIBLY AS HIGH AS 164 which was the level it reached in 1985.

            so you have a problem with atheists too, even if they aren’t liberal? Answer the question. This has nothing to do with sbeechdud. I could care less about that.

          • JC Teecher

            Yea, I have a problem with atheists, as they are the most pathetic of liberals and homo lovers.

            They should just keep their silence about their ignorance and stupidity about how they know that there is no God.

            One day all you atheists will cry like babies when you are forced, get that, forced, to bow down on your knees and confess with your mouth, that Jesus is Lord, and that there is only one God, and he ain’t allah.

            Get yer asbestos britches all laid out, cause you gonna need them unless you have a humbling experience and see the light.

          • SoCalBeachDude

            More Americans are atheists than they are Christians, and the entire Christian religion itself is divided into a very contentious array of facts in disagreement ranging from Greek Orthodox and Catholics to Episcopalians and Presbyterians to Lutherans to Covenant and other middle of the road congregations and ideologies all the way out to Southern Baptists and Evangelicals and Pentacostals – none of whom seem to agree on much of anything even within their Christian religion.

          • GSOB

            A mind illuminated with the knowledge of Christ from the Word finds that ignorance gradually disappears.

          • disqus_8fnHZuw7j5

            so based on your response, sounds like you are labeling me as an atheist. Just because I asked you a simple question. Nowhere in my comment and question did I say I was atheist. But another question: so let me get this right – you know and have 100% proof that Jesus is Lord and God (as the ones in the man made written bible) exist huh? Show/explain that 100% proof without quoting or referencing the bible (new or old testament) or any bible for that matter.

        If you are as smart as you claim, you should not have any trouble creating your own website and blog in a few hours as most. Even if you are not smart it should only take a few hours. The cost is very minimal.

        The days of having to hire a developer or designer to get a good-looking and very functional website are in the past. You can create the five page basic website (with home, about me, services, contact, and blog page) fairly easily with no prior experience as long as you use a drag and drop builder like “Weebly”.
        Is there a reason you do not want to do this?

        • JC Teecher

          I would think so, PocoP.

          he has an audience of Christians and Christian supporters here, so that he can get his jollies by calling them pathetic, ignorant, and stupid, and their comments nonsense.

          if he started his own website, he would only have devil worshipers visiting like Carl, and snottybox.

      I am 100% convinced that these 2 are either paid trolls or suffer from some form of psychosis. The mentalities of these 2 is where stalkers come from–they refuse to leave and any consideration of their words has long past yet they refuse to go away and try and monopolize.

      • JC Teecher

        Since you agree with the majority, may as well go ahead and contribute to the upvote/ symbolic banishment, petition. Since sbd upvoted out of sarcasim, that would make 22 votes for his committal.

      Oh yea they do. They hate my president so much They would give anything to see him impeached. And all their psychotic rantings are gonna backfire on them BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO IDEAS THEY HAVE NO HELP FOR THE WORKING CLASS! All they do is bitch and moan. They have such denial why they lost.

      • BG Gruff

        If the Republicans were smart they would ditch Trump right now, the sooner the better, put all of the drama behind them and get on with the future. This gong show is not going to go away anytime soon. All it can do is drag them down in the next couple of elections.

        • socalbeachdude

          Nope. Donald Trump is the duly elected PRESIDENT OF THE USA and there is no “dumping Trump” just because some folks don’t happen to like Donnie.

            Just 3 weeks ago you were referring to President Trump as “DUFUS DONNIE”.

            You also said “Donnie is not going to “turn around” anything and is headed rapidly towards being IMPEACHED and removed from THE Office of the Presidency.”

            Are you now admitting you were wrong?

          INSANE MCCAIN GOES TOTALLY WHACKADOODLE…

          Sorry my questions to Comey were so poor, I was up watching baseball: John McCain’s bizarre excuse for misfiring at testimony of the decade (at least his team won though)

          Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., was quick to respond to his baffling slew of questions he aimed Thursday at former FBI Director James Comey. ‘I get the sense from Twitter that my line of questioning today went over people’s heads,’ McCain said in a statement after the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing.

            McCain was onto something there. Something about Comey exonerated Hillary on the Russian probe in October but not the president as of now. He was babbling though.

          Half the repubes are on the side of the left, as wolves in sheeps clothing. The Illuminati just hedge their bets in elections on both sides of the isles. Wake up and smell the coffee.

          Trump and his family are the last best hope for America. No, they aren’t perfect, but they are the best we can hope for, as a billionaire family with the ballz and ammo to fight for the rights of patriots and Christians.
          ….and Melania still looks classy like Jackie O. Kennedy,( while Jack was boffing Marilyn, and many other skirts at the time.)
          Melania brings intelligence and beauty , coupled with style and grace, to the White House, of which has not been there since Jackie O, and then afterwards with the lovely Ladybird Johnson, that was a leader for the Head Start Program, and the first woman to ever hire her own staff.
          My closest contact with such a prominent woman was sitting in the same seat as she sat, in her private limo, after it was purchased by a friend of mine years ago. A silk long stem rose still remains there in the seat today. Her most famous legacy is the beautification of America’s cities and towns, and her Wildflower Center in Texas.

          My favorite quote of her’s:

          “It’s odd that you can get so anesthetized by your own pain or your own problem that you don’t quite fully share the hell of someone close to you.”

  • Cinderella Man

    First off DO NOT CLICK ON SOCALBTICHDUDES LINKS! LOADED WITH MALWARE! Ok that being said this was the biggest waste of time today. In fact the entire fake Russia collusion scandal is a waste. It is being done to derail the Trump train by tying up all the lawmakers time with these hearings. It’s the tail wagging the dog. There was no obstruction. That was the key for the demoRATS. They were hoping against hope that something was gonna come out of this. The real story is Seth Rich. He was supposedly killed in a robbery gone bad yet nothing of value was taken off his person. Assange all but admitted that Rich was the source for the Podesta emails. Why would Assange put up a 100K award for information regarding this killing if Rich wasn’t someone important to him? It infuriates me to no end that this is being ignored. This is the REAL scandal. If it ever came out that either Hillarat Podesta or Wasserman Schultz has this young man killed because he knew they stole the nomination from Sanders and gave it to Clinton that would be the true political firestorm! But noooo they think they can keep pushing this fake Russia collusion scandal it’s gonna distract us from getting to the bottom of this. This is way beyond whining about your corrupt candidate losing the election. This is an attempted soft coup. And they are gonna go nowhere with it. Trump is staying in office. We have his back and the people who elected this man against all odds will fight viciously to protect him! What did all you commie lefttards think we were just gonna sit back and let it happen. Get real.

    ‘I want to burn the White House down’: NSA leaker Reality Winner, 25, is DENIED bail as prosecutors claim she may have stolen more top secret information, was fascinated with Islamic terrorism and planned to play the ‘pretty, white girl’ card in court

    Reality Winner portrayed little emotion in court Thursday as she was denied bond in her federal espionage case after the government alleged that she may have stolen other top secret information and poses an ongoing risk to national security. The Air Force veteran, 25, is accused of mailing a classified report on a Russian military intelligence cyber-attack in 2016 to a news website.

    She entered a plea of not guilty before Judge Brian K. Epps at U.S. District Court in downtown Augusta, Georgia on Thursday afternoon after she was charged with a single count of ‘willful retention and transmission of national defense information’. The prosecution made their case for Winner to be detained based on evidence that one prosecutor called ‘downright frightening’. Authorities alleged that Winner praised the Taliban, may have stolen more top secret information and that she planned to play ‘the pretty, white girl’ card in court.

      Agreed, I am done with the bitching, as I have stated my case and vented, and I’m done.
      As for the Comey hearing, it’s done and hopefully finished. We know how the left operates and unless they can find something else to hang their hats on to try and corral the potus over, they will stick to the same old song and dance to call for obstruction and impeachment.
      Why? Because; that is all they have.

      The “going after MSM and liberal enemies by Trump and Sessions”, is what we don’t need, as all that does is tie people up in the courts and hearings, and all for naught.
      If they could not, or would not, indict hitlery for the emails and lying to the world, and get Lynch for obstruction, then nothing will ever happen to the left and their minions at the MSM outlets. It is a moot point.

      work on the replacement of the ACA, and reformation of the tax code is what is important, then the WALL.

        Building a wall on the southern border of the USA with Mexico is not going to change anything and should not be done for a variety of reasons.

            Then why are you here??? Please go present your idea to President Trump immediately!!!

          • SoCalBeachDude

            Donald Trump is very well aware of those solutions which could be implemented by SIMPLY ENFORCING EXISTING LAWS, but the biggest problem is that those laws are then OVERTURNED BY THE COURTS as “unconstitutional” which is exactly what happened when we passed a proposition here in California to cut off all benefits for illegal aliens back in 1994.

            Services for illegal aliens are MANDATED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT and must be paid for by the states such as California which does not choose to spend its money that way but is ordered to do so by the federal government.

            WE VOTED TO DO JUST THAT OVERWHELMING HERE IN CALIFORNIA YEARS AGO AND A FEDERAL COURT OVERTURNED THAT PROPOSITION WHICH PASSED WITH ABOUT 77% OF THE VOTE AS UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

            California Proposition 187 (also known as the Save Our State [SOS] initiative) was a 1994 ballot initiative to establish a state-run citizenship screening system and prohibit illegal aliens from using non-emergency health care, public education, and other services in the State of California. Voters passed the proposed law at a referendum in November 1994. The law was challenged in a legal suit and found unconstitutional by a federal district court. In 1999, Governor Gray Davis halted state appeals of this ruling.

  • Leif Erickson

    I am not defending Hillary Clinton, but Comey said that the FBI could not find any evidence of “intent” to commit a crime which is important for any prosecutor to charge someone in a case.

    Comey said, “Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”

    As any law officer knows, it is difficult to prosecute a high profile person, or anyone for that matter, without motive and intent.

    • JC Teecher

      What he said, and what was actually evident to the world that has eyes to see, are two different things entirely.

      In my honest opinion, Comey had no choice in that matter, except to follow what his handlers had conveyed to him via the inner circles of the shadow gov.
      Otherwise; he may have caused much pain and suffering to his family, via retaliation.
      In the matter, not investigation, of the Trump administration, he had choices, but chose not to use them, as in “leaking” the information that Trump was not the subject of investigation into Russian involvement into our election.

      Hence; clearing of Hitlery, when she was plainly guilty, and not clearing Trump. He was and is playing into politics, which is a no-no, so, he had to go. Plain and simple. Potus has that right and authority, and should have fired him on day two after his inauguration.

      “intent” is NOT necessary for violating the proper handling of classified info

  • Carl

    I am not mocking anything. Simply pointing out the flaws in your bible. These legitimate questions are then ignored or pushed aside by christians who excuse the murder and bloodshed because god knows best. Yet these same christians complain about islam and muslims and their holy books ordering the slaughter of all who are not of the same faith.

    Sure you now have jesus and christians don’t go around slaughtering like they used to in the old testament but come on. There is no difference between the god of the bible in the old testament and the god of islam. The only difference is who they are ordered to slaughter by their gods.

    I asked a question to teecher about gods reason for having babies and toddler murdered and he told me that it was because they had been corrupted by their parents beliefs so they had to be killed. I then asked why the virgin girls were allowed to be spared. After all wouldn’t they have been corrupted by the teaching of their parents? He then ignored my question and proceeded to “block my comments.”

    So Jerry I will ask you. Why was it OK for them to keep the virgin females alive for rape and murder the male children and babies in the bible?

    • JC Teecher

      Once again you lie like the devil that you are.

      I never said God allowed the killing of innocents aka babies and toddlers, because they had been corrupted by their parents. That would be the most ignorant and stupid statement ever.

      God allowed the children, (a child is one under eighteen and not considered innocent like babies and toddlers), to die when he wanted a certain group of idolaters wiped out, because the children, if sparred, would most likely carry on with the same idol worship of their parents.

      It does not matter, because that was God’s business and all you are is a argumentative fruit cake that will never get it. Just like Jerry said, “your questions aren’t to understand, but to mock” and accuse Christians because of all the hate you have inside you.

      I only hope and pray that God has put blinders on you for your own sake and safety, otherwise, Carl, your azz is grazz.
      Now back in your little dummy suitcase.

        • Cinderella Man

          Why do Muslims feel it’s ok to kill and beat their women and castrate their genitals? If you want to attack a religion go after them

          • Carl

            I would if they posted comments about how great their god and religion is on this blog. But they don’t so there is no point in mentioning it.

            And many young people in that country want to escape their religions barbarism when it comes to the treatment of females. They too are brainwashed and cannot step out of their religion and move away from it. So they stay labeled and lumped in with the fanatic nut jobs who think they are doing gods work. Unfortunately one bad apple spoils the bunch as they say and makes all look bad.

            I think today modern christians do more harm on the psychological and emotional level rather than murdering the flesh they murder the spirit with their twisted beliefs about what is and is not acceptable behavior to their god. It is just as bad and maybe worse because those whom they twist and mess up continue to live and spread they same false and sick messages to their own children and continue the cycle.

          • Cinderella Man

            Nah .. Hate to say it but Christians need to go back to crusader times. If not Islam will conquer the entire free world and you won’t have the right to come in here and btich about how much you hate Christ. You will either submit to Sharia law or you will be slaughtered. Me and my Christian gun owning friends will still be around because we have a spine and will die before we renounce our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In not a nice church going Christian. I cuss and I will attack all Muslims and atheists. You people wanna destroy me or my fellow believers best believe I will be the thorn in your side and the pain in your azz. I’m not a turn the other cheek kind of guy.

          • JC Teecher

            As a practicing Christian, and lover of the Word, and follower of Christ, I realize that i am a sinner, will be a sinner until the day my flesh goes back into the earth from whence it came, and can never become the man I should be in the flesh.

            I stopped beating myself up, when I came to that conclusion, and life is much better.
            “Lord forgive me of “all” my sins, as I am weak in battling against the desires of the flesh”.
            That is all that can and needs to be said,or thought, to wipe the ole slate clean again.
            Sometimes my anger (the flesh/carnal mind speaking) gets the better of me, and I need to regroup.

            One thing I will never bow down to, or coddle to, is religion, of any kind. Christianity is not a religion, it is a reality and way of life.
            I agree CM, that we must make a stand for our Christian, gun and Bible toting rights, or the muzzies that are being coddled and worshiped by the liberals will overtake all of us and our children/grandchildren.
            I stand with you as a brother in Christ, and as a true American Patriot, that still believes in our US of A Constitution.
            I stand against anything or anyone that tries to take our liberties and freedoms away.
            Those freedoms are what follywood, and DC liberals, want demolished. They think they would fare better under Sharia. Bull Caca! Like you said, the muzzies w/their Sharia in place would eliminate all of follywood actresses, half of the male actors, and their queer friends and lovers.
            Next would be the politicians and their establishment power base, and Wall Street, as it is considered a form of gambling, like insurance of any kind.

            They are in place to do just that and the blind as a bat liberals can’t see the forest for the trees. When the call to rise up comes about, Jihad will bloody the streets of America, and it will be allowed by our Heavenly Father for the blood of the innocents shed at the hands of liberals since 1973. Nearly 70 million at last count.

            If an eye for an eye is allowed to adjudicate the blood of the innocents, then look for nearly a third of all adults in America to perish before the Lord returns. Then think about justice and adjudication for all the inhabitants of the cities in Sodom and Gomorrah. How unfair of God to allow their demise and suffering, yet allow the filthy sin and disease, along with the rape of little boys and girls associated with the sick liberal/ungodly ideology of America, to flourish.

            Pastor Billy Graham said God would have to apologize to the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah’s times that were completely annihilated, if the homosexuals are allowed to be protected by laws, to push their agenda upon our children, while taking God and prayer out of those same schools.
            It will not go unpunished either.

            I could care less if the queers want to pizz away their eternal existence for selfish lust of strange flesh, just don’t try to force me to accept it as acceptable by my Creator. It ain’t!

            What follows I have quoted from the Matthew Henry Commentary…
            Read it, repent and pray, while there is still time….Carl

            Numbers 31:13-18
            (Commentary)

            The sword of war should spare women and children; but the sword of justice should know no distinction, but that of guilty or not guilty.

            This war was the execution of a righteous sentence upon a guilty nation, in which the women were the worst criminals.

            The female children were spared, who, being brought up among the Israelites, would not tempt them to idolatry.

            The whole history shows the hatefulness of sin, and the guilt of tempting others; it teaches us to avoid all occasions of evil, and to give no quarter to inward lusts.

            The women and children were not kept for sinful purposes, but for slaves, a custom every where practised in former times, as to captives.

            In the course of providence, when famine and plagues visit a nation for sin, children suffer in the common calamity.

          • SoCalBeachDude

            Carl is 100% correct as to his comments.

            Moreover, you are attempting to argue about some trivia of zero relevance.

          • GSOB

            Proverbs 11:31

          • Carl

            GSOB keep lying along with lying preachers. The male children were not kept as slaves:

            Numbers 31:17 “Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.”

            “But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.”

            “The female children were spared, who, being brought up among the Israelites, would not tempt them to idolatry.”

            Really and why is that? Not to mention you know the real reason virgin females were kept alive and it wasn’t to drink tea. God loves those virgins.

            Women were property. Your wonderful god even said so in the 10 commandments.

            “The women and children were not kept for sinful purposes, but for
            slaves, a custom every where practised in former times, as to captives.”

            Well you have to admit that is pretty pathetic that god would condone such a practice for the children of heathens BUT it was NOT OK for the Egyptians to keep his chosen people as slaves. I guess this is just another case of do as I say not as I do.

            I have been told that gods mind and ways are not like ours – yet your old testament contradicts that with many, many verses.

            If god has no moral conscious above what man is then god as depicted in the bible is obviously a creation in the minds of men who would love to justify their evil and customs and make it seem OK.

    This headline tells a tale. A tale of the ultimate blowback.

    Blowback has been a constant talk of American foreign policy. A policy of global aggression, upheaval, regime change, numerous wars. From time to time, things will blow up in their faces. The politicians call these blowbacks ‘terrorism’ and proceeded to create war on terrorism. But all these blowbacks are smaller than the one engulfing D.C. for about 2 decades. Hiding in plain sight.

    A policy of foreign government regime change has now blown back into D.C. to become domestic regime change. Each party’s top priority after an election is to immediately stage political coup to overthrow the new president. By all means available short of a gun. The Deep State started it with JFK, RFK with actual gun. Then the politicians took over with Watergate on Nixon. Iran-Contra with Reagan. Lewinsky on Clinton. And so on and on. (LBJ blew himself up with Vietnam. Carter with Iran embassy hostage. Bush 2 with Iraq, Wall Street and bubbles.)

    The American people have been entertained by Big Media to treat these dirty politics as ‘normal’ politics. Big Media complicity is understandable – they make big money milking these games 24×7. But the bloody in-fightings are in fact regime change, political coup trying to overthrow the other guy’s president. Both parties do it. The ultimate destruction of democracy, will of people.

    American democracy is today a laughing stock of the world. The ultimate blowback.

    Mmm, that sounds familiar…just like when President Obama was in office, and the treasonous Republican Congress obstructed everything, the country and her citizens be damned. Remember?
    What comes around goes around fellow Americans. And, we’ll keep doing this, cycle after cycle, until blogs like this one, and Fox Fake News, stop brainwashing Americans into thinking that other Americans are their enemies.

      Liberals, jihadis, muzzies that support Sharia, and LWO/NWO/One World Order supporters, (which are most liberals), and the pro abortion killing factories associates…all may be citizens, but get this Zlat, they are not true Americans, nor ever will be.

      They are ruled by the forces of darkness and death.
      You may claim to be Christian, but if you support the liberal world agenda, my book says you are nothing but an infidel, and are seen as a fake follower of God.
      Your future will not be as you think and hope it will be when the King returns and separates the goats from the sheep. Sheep are not perfect, as we sin daily, and our most righteous acts are viewed as filthy rags in comparison to the perfect life that Christ lived on this earth, however; we are not bound for the pit like the goats are. You seem to be aligning with goats. What is your real position? What is in your heart?

      • Zlatko Milanovic

        Good morning JC; I respectfully disagree. It’s not for you to say who is a true American. Neither does one have to be a Christian to be a true American.
        By the way, I’m not an atheist, jihadi, don’t support Sharia law, etc. You often hurl those epithets when you disagree with me, knowing full well it’s untrue.
        So here’s the point: you are free to believe what you want, I don’t begrudge you your faith. You are not free to impose your religious beliefs on other Americans, neither is the Constitution synonymous with the Bible. As long as you and others continue to disrespect and demonize other Americans, viewing them as your enemies, rather than neighbors who respectfully disagree with your world view, our nation will continue on it’s current trajectory straight towards social, economic and political collapse.
        Just consider it. Have a great day my fellow American.

        • JC Teecher

          Once again, with due respect, you misconstrue my first paragraph to indicate that it is about you. It is in response to your statement about “…. until blogs like this one, and Fox Fake News, stop brainwashing Americans into thinking that other Americans are their enemies.”

          You somehow belittle people that don’t follow your liberal ideological view of the world, as “brainwashed”. When in all factual appearance, it is your types that are brainwashed by pc majority to see that the world, and especially America, as having an obligation to separate our faith, from politics, based on the assumption that “separation of church and state” was intended to allow all religious beliefs to be accepted, universally. WRONG!

          The true intent of that Constitutional law, was clarified by more than one of the framers of the US Constitution, to mean that the GOV. could not determine a specific religion that all must follow, like had been done from many monarch governments in the past by adopting the Roman Catholic style of Christianity and mandating it upon all citizens or …..else.

          We are and always have been a Nation based on Biblical laws and values.
          Granted, those beliefs and commitments are waning from what they were 200 years ago, but none the less, they are still the majority. In a republic society, such as what ours was founded upon, majority rules.

          Your liberal ideology is not the majority, except in the Californication state and the metropolis cities of NYC, Chicago, and a few others. If it were, then your mini-god Hitlery or Bernie, would be potus.

          Once again, you have it wrong, as I have not condemned you to hell, only to point out that you are on a path of liberal ideology that is not part of God’s commandments, laws, and statutes.
          Following political correctness that contradicts God’s way, is a sure fire way to meet the fire…head first.

          You are free to condemn and criticize the current potus, as i am free to teach you and others about biblical truths in association with politics and life in general. You are also free to download Kill-file, or any other blocking mechanism software and block me out; but , you can’t force me to shut up and not proselytize any thing I desire.

          I respect your choice to sail your ship of fools into the dark world of liberalism that ultimately leads to death and destruction, but that does not give you the right to shut me up. You have the right to shut me “out”, and that is all.

          So understand this, Zlat, I am free to impose my words of truth towards you or anyone else on a public forum. The owner/administrator has the right to shut me out by banning, but he can’t shut me up either, as the internet is currently open to freedom of speech and I can go to other sites or start my own.
          Christians have a right to stand up and bellow out their beliefs and biblical facts and interpretations, and you will never shut us up….only out.

          As far as demonizing other Americans, only they can do that by their words and actions, all I can do is call them out for what I see as evil. If it is, or is not evil, then that is between them and their Maker, as I only call it like I see it, which makes it an opinion, not a law.

          You want to make it a law, as all liberals do, to shut up Christians. But you want to allow the heathen religions like i-slam, to be protected. the roots of that way of life is from satan, and not the God of Abraham., Isaac, and jacob (Israel). So, ask yourself; where are your priorities in regards to our Heavenly Father?

          From where I sit, it ain’t looking too good for you, so maybe you need to do a little more soul searching, and a lot less condemnation of our potus and the conservative right.

    The first is called “Killfile” and can be downloaded and used like disqus block. I like it better because it is easily temporarily opened if you want to see a person’s comment, that you have on block, which may be directed at you as a personal attack. We have a few posters here that thrive on making personal attacks.

    Anyways, it is shown as a “plug in” with google chrome, of which I use, and it helps out with my navigation through crap like sbd’s daily doses. Try it if you like, as it is easy to locate and load.

    Secondly; Pro 14:19
    The evil bow before the good; and the wicked at the gates (courts/judgment day) of the righteous.

    The atheist liberals may seem to have their day here and now, but their here and now is soon coming to an end. The wicked jihadists may seem to be on the winning side for now, but one day all those that follow a fake god, will have no choice but to bow before Christ, as King of Kings, and He will not be helping to kill Christians, as they claim. That is what Satan does, in the name of allah.

    Pro 14:12
    There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
    Pro 14:13
    Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; and the end of that mirth is heaviness.

    When sitting all alone, there is no laughter that brings joy for the atheists like carl,sbd,and snotly. They are sad people inside, and carry a sick mind. Atheists crow big, like a rooster at sunrise, when they have like minded bedfellows, but; when all the crowing ceaseth, they are lonely and none come to comfort their anguish.

            California is by far the most important state in the USA economically and would be the 6th largest country in the world if it were a separate country and has a $2.5 trillion a year economy which is vastly larger – by far – than any other state as well as more than 12% of the entire population of the USA.

            We have the wealthiest areas in the world where people live and the beautiful weather of any place in the world except the southern part of France.

            Your bizarre views of California are totally false and colored by the fact that you live in the poorest and most undesirable part of the USA there is anywhere in the USA.

            Appalachian Studies

            Appalachia as an academic interest was the product of a critical scholarship that emerged across the disciplines in the 1960s and 1970s.

            With a renewed interest in issues of power, scholars could not dismiss the social inequity, class conflict, and environmental destruction encountered by America’s so-called “hillbillies.”

            Appalachia’s emergence in academia is a result of the intersection between social conditions and critical academic interests, and has resulted in the development of many Appalachian studies programs in colleges and universities across the region, as well as in the Appalachian Studies Association.

            So I say in return, “don’t be fooled” by foolish stereotypes. There are great things happening in the beautiful Appalachian mountains. Oh, there are plenty of rich people in this city, for what it’s worth… but they’re more humble than you’d expect. And hardly any violence here. It’s wonderful.

            Education in Appalachia (Or the Lack Thereof)

            For much of the region’s history, education in Appalachia has lagged behind the rest of the nation due in part to struggles with funding from respective state governments and an agrarian-oriented population that often failed to see a practical need for formal education.

            Early education in the region evolved from teaching Christian morality and learning to read the Bible into small, one-room schoolhouses that convened in months when children were not needed to help with farm work.

            After the Civil War, mandatory education laws and state assistance helped larger communities begin to establish graded schools and high schools.

            During the same period, many of the region’s institutions of higher education were established or greatly expanded. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, service organizations such as Pi Beta Phi and various religious organizations established settlement schools and mission schools in the region’s more rural areas.

            In the 20th century, national trends began to have more of an effect on education in Appalachia, sometimes clashing with the region’s traditional values.

            The Scopes Trial—the nation’s most publicized debate over the teaching of the theory of evolution—took place in Dayton, Tennessee in southern Appalachia in 1925. In spite of consolidation and centralization, schools in Appalachia struggled to keep up with federal and state demands into the 21st century. Since 2001, a number of the region’s public schools were threat

            Read my reply to Carl. If you were to visit this city, you’d understand why it’s BOOMING… and why people don’t want to leave here. It’s clean, peaceful, beautiful, and full of culture. But feel free to draw your entire reality from whatever papers, reports and stereotypes you’re adhering to. This is one of the most sought out areas at this point in history. While most big cities are decaying and/or trying to keep things balanced, the expansion and opportunity here can’t be contained.

    These are the facts concerning the birth of Jesus Christ:
    His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph.
    But while she was still a virgin she became pregnant by the Holy Spirit.

    Then Joseph, her fiancé, being a man of stern principle,
    decided to break the engagement but to do it quietly,
    as he didn’t want to publicly disgrace her.

    As he lay awake considering this, he fell into a dream and saw an angel standing beside him.

    “Joseph, son of David,” the angel said,
    “don’t hesitate to take Mary as your wife!
    For the child within her has been conceived by the Holy Spirit.
    And she will have a Son, and you shall name him

    but she remained a virgin until her Son was born;
    and Joseph named him

    “COVFEFE” UPSTAGED AT WHITE HOUSE BY “LOLAKLKK”

    There is a child tweeting from the White House! Deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ three-year-old goes rogue on her Twitter feed using her phone

    White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders got a very public reminder about maintaining cell phone security at all times, after leaving hers unlocked on Saturday. At 5.58am, one of Sanders’ verified White House deputy press secretary Twitter accounts, @SHSanders45 – she has two verified accounts – tweeted out an emoji-laden message that was a hodgepodge of trains, maps, traffic lights, castles, boats and a Moai, among other emojis.

    Also buried within the tweet was the mysterious jumble of letters: ‘lolaklkk.’ Twitter users who saw the tweet were left scratching their heads for an hour and a half, speculating if this was the Trump administration’s follow up to the ‘covfefe’ incident, before Sanders cleared things up. ‘This is what happens when your 3 year old steals your phone. Thanks Huck!’ she tweeted out at 7.31am, referring to her son. In the same tweet, she added the hashtag, ‘#neverleaveyourphoneunlocked.’

    Where is the “I hope we can learn to get along” by the author? (If I use his name, the post will be held up). The thing I dread among others is…. (not only on this site but many others), one side seeing the other side of the aisle as the devil and vice versa. Division. Smh. As the Lord has said in His word…… things will towards the end of this age become more dangerous and deceitful. We don’t give up, but we strive to find ways to continue the Lord’s work that include some things from both sides of the aisle. I continue to value M and M’s work on this site. I do. Yet, I’m concerned about further rhetorical division. Anyone can ask me about my political views if they wish. I’m a mix between the two. To some that may make me the devil, but I respectfully disagree. ………. Anyway, concerned for all here and elsewhere. Btw, Christ is the Way. …..This world as we know it is soon to end, with God’s Son showing up to correct it. That will be one happy day. : ) .

    • JC Teecher

      I for one, appreciate your candor and Christian input.
      As Christians, we must remain as “keepers of the faith”.
      As the protests/marches/rallies were held yesterday against the allowance of Sharia law in America, the left tried to change the whole meaning of the group that is making a stand against Sharia.

      I know you love the Lord, and am not questioning your faith, however; Chris you surely do know that any leftist/liberal ideology is considered “worldism” by our Father?

      Do you want to be seen as a lover of the world? As one that aligns with the leftist maniacs that tried to turn a peaceful patriotic demonstration into a racial discrimination protest against middle easterners?
      Are you still for the killing of innocents in the womb, at an early stage, for whatever justifiable reason?

      I am just curious as you may be a good example to others and their “straddling of the fence” ideas.

      We know, or should know, that this “kinda” Christian, and kinda liberal / kinda democrat/left does not mix.
      As carnal humans we think/believe it can mix and be right with our Father and Saviour, of whom you speak of with love and honor.

      The truth is, chris; it does not mix, and is part of the last days symbology used by calling out the LaodIcean Church (2Ti 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.) as the last days “luke warm” church. What did Christ say about those types?

      Rev 3:16
      So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

      Accepting any form of liberalism, which is to say, any part of a demoncratic agenda, is to stand contrary to everything Christian. A person cannot have it both ways and be seen as a warrior for Christ. It is like those that say they are “gay” Christians. We can’t just pick and choose parts of the bible that we agree with, and then discard those that don’t fit our worldly, flesh craving view. If the LGBTQ establishment could eliminate all scripture mentioning Sodom and Gomorrah, or anything about those cities and their destruction by God, they would do it.

      In other words Christ is saying…I can’t use you, because I have nothing to work with if you are lukewarm, and straddling the fence. It would be better if you were totally cold (lost sinner/infidel/heathen) because I know exactly were you stand, so I know how to deal with you to try and transform you into a Christian, or accept that you follow Satan and his agenda, which is pro abortion and pro homosexuality.

      The lines are drawn, and it is the 100% reason for life in the flesh/worldly. To see if one loves God and His Son, or loves Satan.
      The whole world, except for those with the 100% “seal” of biblical truth and obedience to their Creator, will whor/follow after, Satan when he comes as Antichrist.
      That is the last straw for some. Especially after they have read the Book, with all it’s lessons, yet have followed man’s doctrines which causes them to follow Satan, and ignored the doctrine of Jesus Christ.

      It will happen just as foretold, and no Planet X that is supposed to hit on Sept 23rd is going to change that fact.

      • mtntrek3

        ………. Hey there JCT, I hope you and yours are doing well for starters. My take is this, neither side politically is altogether correct. Yes, I realize that the left has possibly more faults than the right. Conditions should be placed upon abortions imho and rare, and gay marriage I disagree with. Yet, the right tends to neglect the impoverished and favor the rich/affluent. In between lie answers…. but we may very well be past the point of no return concerning our collective financial situation in the country (and otherwise). What I see is that there are answers to be found on both sides of the political aisle. I suppose that makes me the devil. To me, to define one spiritually as to his or her political stance is in question as to what each individual sees as correct or incorrect. I tend to lean left overall politically, while seeing possible solutions from both sides. My faith in Christ remains my standby for now and for evermore. You know as I do, He is the Way. Take care JCT. God Bless.

        • JC Teecher

          I return the well wishes and payers for your future.

          I see you have a degree of uncertainty regarding the mixing of politics and worship/faith/christianity.

          It isn’t I you have to convince of your acceptance of certain liberal ideologies, it what is wrriten down in your books of life in Heaven you should be concerned with.
          The only unforgivable sin is that which can only be committed for those called up to be a witness against Antichrist, after he arrives. That is the blaspheming of the Holy Spirit, by denying Him to speak through you as a witness for the world to see, of Christ to yet come.

          So, having said that, I do believe that siding with liberals and democrats, because of their evil agenda is a major sin, and all those going along will be held accountable.
          And yes; there are many liberals/wolves in sheep clothing, on the right repub side as well.

          It is better to stay neutral in politics, than to side with liberals on some views, and stand with/vote, for them to further the leftist evil agenda. Because any vote, at any level, for liberalism, is definitely a vote against God.

          Have a nice day, and stay away from the left side of the ship.

          • mtntrek3

            Concerned for sure. For all of us. Politics is flawed in various degrees on both sides. To equate the spiritual condition of anyone according to their political stance is trouble imho. The right isn’t always right, and vice versa. The enemy wants us at each other’s throats any way he can manage it. What matters is acceptance of Jesus as our Savior. You and I both know that of course. Times to descend into chaos soon. Hang on brother. You and yours take care…… Christ is coming back soon. : ). Chris.

          • JC Teecher

            Most definitely, and I might add that “equating the spiritual condition of anyone” may be considered “trouble”, if that someone has not fully divulged their political position.
            However; if said person has divulged that information, then, and only then, is it called “spiritual discernment”, and not judging the position of said person’s soul.
            I only point out such discernment as a reminder that said person has every word, thought, and position, be it political or spiritual, recorded in Heaven.

            Those records known as the Books of Life, are brought forward when Christ returns “after” tribulation; and are used as reference and basis for judging that said person, by Christ as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, to either the left as goats, or right as the saints/elect/redeemed/sheep.

            It would be sad for a so-called Christian to think they were a sheep, but had been found lacking and worshiping Antichrst because they fell for some liberalism doctrine.

            It can and will happen, as many will follow the false pre-trib rapture doctrine of men and their faux messiah, that comes first, at the sixth trump.
            Sometimes belief in and of Christ will get one to the door, like the ten virgins, but not having truth and following the wrong messiah, and not having enough oil of truth to light their way, they fall short like the five did, and the door will be closed on them. Why? When they ran out away from Christ to grab some more oil (truth) they got it from man and Satan/antichrist, and were a day late and dollars worth of oil short.

            Just saying, as it is written, and everyone has to sail their own ship, chris. have a good float.

        “I know you love the Lord, and am not questioning your faith, however;
        Chris you surely do know that any leftist/liberal ideology is considered
        “worldism” by our Father?”

        And there we have it folks. Christian judgement presented as being “non-judgemental.” Another reason that christian or any religion really can be an emotional massacre on the soul and the spirit. I feel sorry for the religious. All the guilt they pile on themselves and other people can really suck the joy out of a persons life and mess them up in the head. Ironically below Chris feels the need to justify his interpretation of his faith rather than just telling teecher to bugger off.

        Teecher then ramps up the mind control with a verse from revelations about being luke warm and god just spitting you out of his mouth like tobacco chew. What happened to believing in jesus and you will be saved? That jesus paid the price for it ALL?

        Apparently that whole jesus was the sacrificial lamb this was just a ruse and their are a whole lot of interpretations designed to make you feel guilty or destined for the hell train if you think for yourself and have your own opinion about what it means to you to be a christian.

        Chris you know I am right. That is why your rebuttals most times include the phrase: “Gods mind is above our own so we can’t know or understand his reasoning.”

        Teecher is also a fan of the pick and choose as he once said if he ever got sick of his wife he would leave her.

        So sad how the emotionally fragile are the biggest casualties when it comes to ALL religion. Removing the spiritual with the law as they say.

        Religion in Backcountry Appalachia

        Christianity has long been the main religion in Appalachia.

        Religion in Appalachia is characterized by a sense of independence and a distrust of religious hierarchies, both rooted in the evangelical tendencies of the region’s pioneers, many of whom had been influenced by the “New Light” movement in England.

        Many of the denominations brought from Europe underwent modifications or factioning during the Second Great Awakening (especially the holiness movement) in the early 19th century.

        A number of 18th and 19th-century religious traditions are still practiced in parts of Appalachia, including natural water (or “creek”) baptism, rhythmically chanted preaching, congregational shouting, snake handling, and foot washing.

        While most church-goers in Appalachia attend fairly well organized churches affiliated with regional or national bodies, small unaffiliated congregations are not uncommon in rural mountain areas.

By agreeing to be deposed he has opened the door for his attorney to call and cross examine any witness he chooses including Obama, The Clintons, Rice, Lynch and any one number of cast of characters. We may finally be able to get to the bottom of a number of unanswered questions like the details of Hillary’s uranium deal with the Russians or what did Bill and Lynch discuss on that plane.

    Do what you always did, it’s what you always do. Don’t change, be the same. Forever

    I tend to think of this as ones that worshiped Obama back when he took office. I voted for him, but didn’t worship him. In hindsight …. he did an average job. Actually somewhat below average imho. The Savior will appear in the near future. Get ready by accepting Him into your personal life. Take care all.

    • SoCalBeachDude

      Yes, the US economy has been collapsing ever since August 2007 when the GRAND GLOBAL DEPRESSION started and is that collapse is now rapidly intensifying.

    Thus you have made my point. The bible was NOT written by GOD. It was written by men and as it was written by men all that was common practice in those times is seen as orders and instruction from THEIR GOD.

    You say god does not condone rape. Here are bible verses that say otherwise. Are you that brainwashed that you can ignore the truth when presented to you?

    The problem with most christians is they really have NO idea what exactly is in their bible. Their religion broken down into some catch phrases and bible stories that they pass on. They are blind to the god they worship and what they are actually condoning. Of course they are always willing to criticize all other religions but can never see the log in their own religion and their own god.

    This is for you Jerry:

    Judges 21:10-24 NLT

    “They told the men of Benjamin who still needed wives, “Go and hide in the vineyards. When the women of Shiloh come out for their dances, rush out from the vineyards, and each of you can take one of them home to be your wife!”
    “They kidnapped the women who took part in the celebration and carried them off to the land of their own inheritance.”

    Deuteronomy 20:10-14
    “But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder. You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the LORD your God has given you.”

    Deuteronomy 22:28-29
    “If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.”

    Deuteronomy 22:23-24 – remnants of the Islam religion I presume:
    “If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbors wife.”

    2 Samuel 12:11-14
    Thus says the Lord: ‘I will bring evil upon you out of your own house. I will take your wives [plural] while you live to see it, and will give them to your neighbor. He shall lie with your wives in broad daylight. You have done this deed in secret, but I will bring it about in the presence of all Israel, and with the sun looking down.’

    Deuteronomy 21:10-14
    “When you go out to war against your enemies and the LORD, your God, delivers them into your hand, so that you take captives, if you see a comely woman among the captives and become so enamored of her that you wish to have her as wife, you may take her home to your house. But before she may live there, she must shave her head and pare her nails and lay aside her captive’s garb. After she has mourned her father and mother for a full month, you may have relations with her, and you shall be her husband and she shall be your wife. However, if later on you lose your liking for her, you shall give her her freedom, if she wishes it; but you shall not sell her or enslave her, since she was married to you under compulsion.”

    Zechariah 14:1-2
    Lo, a day shall come for the Lord when the spoils shall be divided in your midst. And I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem for battle: the city shall be taken, houses plundered, women ravished; half of the city shall go into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be removed from the city.

    Infanticide in the bible:

    1 Samuel 15
    Psalms 135:8 & 136:10
    Psalms 137:9

    Plus child sacrifice in the bible because a promise to god is a promise after all: Judges 11:30-40

    Gang rape in your bible:

    Judges 19:24-29

  • SoCalBeachDude

    The LIAR was clearly Comey who will now likely be PROSECUTED for his stream of LIES and treasonous activity including LEAKING government information.

  • SoCalBeachDude

    False.

    RADIO BLUES: CUMULUS on brink of total collapse…

    At radio giant Cumulus Media, things have gone from bad to worse. A quick look at the stock price tells the tale.

    When former Chief Executive Lew Dickey exited in September 2015, the stock was already an anemic $5.45. On Friday, Cumulus shares closed at 52 cents.

    Back in the halcyon days of early 2014, Cumulus stock was trading at $64.04. Now things are in tatters, and a Nasdaq delisting looms — as does a possible bankruptcy.

    Cumulus owns hundreds of radio stations and syndication company Westwood One, and competes with the likes of iHeart and CBS Radio, now in the hands of Entercom.

    I do notice you picked only ONE of the many verses I quoted to disprove and interpret as you saw fit (lie with can mean consensual or it can mean rape). Yet you left the others alone. You are brainwashed.

    Also if you really think the KJV is the unsullied word of god, think again. There are many issues with this one also. Not to mention all the books conveniently left out of the bible. You are the one who is clueless and your decision not to research and learn the truth makes you more evil because you are supposed to study to show yourself approved not just take what your preacher tells you is truth.

    Lazy christian.
